What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
People often wonder if my kids can become diabetic because I am. I explain to them what my doctor told me: the general population has a 1% chance of becoming type 1 diabetic and being the child of parent with type 1 gives them a 2% chance.
Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?
Travel! People tend to think it’s too dangerous but I just take extra precautions and I have never had a problem abroad. *knocks on wood*
How do you inspire others?
I work out at the gym and I wear my pump while doing it! Diabetes is a reason to be fit rather than an excuse to stay home.
